Right.

Although in Chile and I guess in other Spanish speaking countries you say you want to eat ternera, meaning veal, of course.

Beef can also be res or carne de res.

Well, interesting thread. Angelica and Irma explained very well the terminology. I think that the terms carne roja, carne blanca, pescado blanco, pescado azul, are mainly used in medical terms or in health books. The man in the street would use carne or pescado, and if you want to be more specific you say filete de ternera, trasero de pollo, muslos de pollo etcc. I think that to learn this vocabulary well it would be wise to open a new thread including all the vocabulary concerning different kinds of meat and the way is served either steak, chop , fillet etc.........

But the ordinary man in the street does not speak well enough.
Carne roja is a culinary term, so it's quite open to be use in a good medical book. But I'm sure you are right and it is use, more than nothing, in nutricional books.

I agree with the definition from RAE about "carne", it's quite long but I'm sure it will help.
